Bamboo Body Caringbah inspired by The Needles at Engadine

Inspired by one of Sutherland Shire's natural hidden treasures, Caringbah fashion label Bamboo Body has launched its latest collection.

With similar hues matched by the earthy surrounds of The Needles at Engadine, the new designs epitomise a new season of growth.

The eco-friendly brand wrapped up its most recent fashion shoot at the site. It adds to previous locations in the area that also influenced the label's bodies of work - from Darook Park to the sand dunes at Kurnell, Camellia Gardens and Cape Solander.

The Needles is a deep pool slightly off track, surrounded by native bushland and caves, once used as shelter by the Indigenous community. Located just above the Woronora River, it is bathed in sunlight all year round, which not only provided light, it also helped keep things warm for model Frances who was wearing light clothing in the middle of winter.

The brand was established by sisters Amanda and Elouise. They adored the luxurious feel of bamboo fabric, hence the name was born and the range has expanded since 2005.

Label co-creator Elouise Danby was in awe of its beauty when scouting for a location to photograph the spring collection.

"We're always on the look-out for beautiful locations that compliment our collections," she said. "We are lucky that the shire is so dramatically beautiful that we never have to travel far.

"Our new spring colours are rich and warm, inspired by the natural Australian landscape. The Needles shares the same quintessential Aussie look as our collection, so it just felt right."

More than just the sustainable fashion choice, Bamboo Body clothing is described by its creators as feminine and classic. Think everyday essentials such as yoga pants, office outfits, poolside chic, party dresses, maternity fashion and men's and women's underwear.

The new collection is available from September 16.
